Rumor: This Is How Finn Recovers from His Duel with Kylo Ren in Episode VIII
At the end of The Force Awakens, Finn was in a precarious situation after sustaining serious injuries in a duel with Kylo Ren. Now, Episode VIII script details are starting to leak out, and a new report claims to have the scoop on Finn's method of recovery after nearly losing life and limb.

Possible spoilers for Episode VIII follow!


According to Making Star Wars, Finn's recovery process involves the gelatinous healing substance called bacta, which healed Luke Skywalker in Empire Strikes Back after he was maimed by a wampa ice creature. It has the ability to quickly regenerate body tissue, including nerves, muscle, and skin, and has appeared in several books and other works in the new Expanded Universe. 
Opening quote
Medical staff have now placed Finn in a bubble suit (to elaborate, we have it on good authority it is called a bacta suit), to heal his injuries. There is apparently a sequence where Finn is cut or removed from the suit and is revealed to be in better condition than ever before.
Closing quote

From MSW's description, the suit looks something like an inflatable Baymax suit, except it's clear. It would make sense for Finn's recovery process to have some sort of science fictional explanation, since he was in pretty rough shape at the end of TFA. Luckily, this process will free him up to embark on a journey that will make him a "big deal" in the Resistance, which we can't wait to see.

Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
